Yep forgot about the mip 4in1, that is a must have in my opinion. And the tranny brace. I just made my own out of 1/8 inch aluminum. Just trace the stock one on it and cut it out.

Beetle, drop the dime and get the front widening, you'll really like it. Good racers say the rpm a-arms flex. They also say beginning racers will probably not notice it. Personally I've never ran them, or had a problem with the stocks. My buddy could use some rpms, he breaks arms.

Dave, I gotta go check my lotto ticket, if I win the millions, I'm comming to race with ya!! Oh yeah, I just bought a sleeve pincher that is supposed to fit a nova mt .12 and picco .15 off ebay last night. A guy gave me a worn out picco, so I'll give it a shot for 25 bux.

Just some input about the chassie brace for the tranny...


The stock part offer`s better traction....
Look at a few factory rides & almost always you will see the plastic unstead of graphite ,ect...

The flex in the plastic gives you traction & a smoother ride over the bumps...

Hehe, again I've never had problems with the stock tranny brace. Only made an aluminum one cause I figured stiffer was better. Either will be fine.

Unless you're like my buddy, and land to hard on the rear to often after big jumps. He breaks rear a-arms, and his tranny brace looks like an accordian.

lol jbrow

i got the alum tranny brace, primarily because i tend to bend chassis ALOT. lol so far ive bent 2 of them. and until i looked at em next to a new chassis, i never would have known! the last one i bend was almost dragging its belly lol

oh, and since i got the tranny brace i havnt flat out stripped a spur gear. some say one has nothing to do with the other, some swear by it. and it may just be that my driving skills have improved, and it may be the smoother engagement of the mip clutch, but i havnt stripped one out yet!

ill get that widening kit soon enough i think. right now im going to concentrate on getting a 1/12 scale and a good batt charger, so i can race through the winter, then get a T4 in the spring

The engine you linked to will need the crank cut down. Look for the same engine with a short shaft, so you won't have to cut it, or void the warranty.

Here's the motor in short shaft: OS .12 cv-r short shaft

Or you could get this motor which is about same price and even more powerful than the cv-r: OS .12 TR
Apparently the short shaft of this motor is discontinued. But cutting the crank is easy.

how come in the short shaft model it has the pull start on it???

can i just remove that somehow???

i also wanted to stick with the ER carb, because i heard it is very easy to tune, is the M carb easy/hard to tune???

I'm not seeing a CV-R short shaft without the pullstarter. You can either get that one, and get a new 5 dollar backplate when you order, or get the one you posted and cut the crank. Cutting the crank voids the warranty. You could call Tower and see if the cv-r is available in short shaft without the pullstart. But as I said above, cutting the crank is pretty simple.

The TR motor is completely different, I don't know about that carb, but it's probably as user friendly as the er. It's a rear exhaust motor so you'd have to get a rear exhaust manifold also. I forgot about that part.

The carb on the TR is larger around the base where it meets the block, which is why it has the 10M carburetor instead of one of the E carbs.

I may need to get a pincher off ebay for mt12 myself, Man I love that engine, when you pinch your engines do you use a torque wrench?

I've only done it on my cv, and I didn't use a torque wrench. I'll try the pincher out on the picco and see how it works. If it works decent, I can mail it to ya so you can pinch your mt and see how it works on that, then mail it back. If it does actually work for both the guy has another one on ebay.

That would be sweet running a race day with all those guys. My buddy and I may go to ohio and race their midwest championship race in January. Should be some really good guys there I would think. Here's a link to their website if anyone is interested: Columbus Ohio Track

Just found this link looking around these forums, super price for pinching sleeves. 15 bux plus shipping. Sleeve pinching
Only other guy I heard of that everyone says is the shiznit, is OsRocket. He charges like 25 plus shipping. He's been around a long time.

i got a GT question for yalls....

i just picked up my freshly painted crowd pleazer today from the shop, ran home, poped out the body mount holes, and it didnt fit!

it all lines up correctly, but the front bumper (stock one) prevents the nose of the body from sitting flat. i can mush the nose in behind the bumper but then it just looks silly. does anyone know a way around this? i dont think the RPM bumper would be any better :\
